Are subdural hygromas the result of abusive head trauma? CT and MR imaging represent important tools for the diagnosis of abusive head trauma in living infants. In addition, in-depth understanding of the pathogenesis of subdural hygromas is increasingly required by neuroradiologists, pediatricians, and forensic physicians. Therefore, the current knowledge(More)
Virchow-Robin spaces ensheathe the penetrating vessels of the brain. They communicate with the subpial space, are filled with interstitial fluid and contain a specific population of macrophages.Virchow-Robin spaces are a common finding in both CT and MR imaging. Recent radiologic studies have led to a concise definition of Virchow-Robin spaces.Virchow-Robin(More)
BACKGROUND The first ever diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) requires consideration of both diagnostic criteria and differential diagnosis. Clinicians are particularly challenged by rare conditions which may mimic MS symptoms and relapses. CASE REPORT We report the case of a young female patient who presented with relapsing left hemispheric symptoms(More)
